The best EVER Amiga Adventure game?

Oki, mon.... which adventure game on the almighty-powerful-supreme-outstanding-kick'ass-fantastic-superior Amiga do YOU think is the best?

Name two games, must be; Adventure | Point and Click only

Mine are:

1. Darkseed
2. Legend of Kyrandia


I will probably after a while make a poll of all the games mentioned here and see which one wins.






Edit:

Those of you who votes for more than two games will not have their games included in the final poll (unless someone else has already type one of your titles down in another post in a correct way) , so you better edit your posts and choose only two .

You're crazy How are we supposed to choose only TWO!?

Well, I would choose a Sierra game but, as I said in another of these adventure game threads, their point-and-click games weren't especially impressive on the Amiga.

I would probably say:

1) The Secret Of Monkey Island (Although Zak McKracken and Maniac Mansion are just slightly behind when we're talking Lucasfilm/Lucasarts, and MI2 is excellent as well).

2) Beneath A Steel Sky

Still, it hurts not to be able to include Operation Stealth, Future Wars or Cruise For A Corpse. Or Dreamweb. Or Darkseed for that matter...

You're SO cruel, Ironclaw

Not all Sierra's early adventure games were that bad, LSL 2 was quite playable from floppy & IMHO the sound FX though brief even put it a touch above its PC counterpart. I found Larry 3 & Indy & the Last Crusade were about even on the disk swapping department esp. if reloading a saved game-its fortunate most of the above mentioned adventure games made the loading times worthwhile!

Yes. But I still remember the horrible experience with Space Quest 5 In emul I have tried some of their games, no problem with HD. But compare the attitude of Sierra and LucasArts for example, MI2 with 11 floppy disks could be played well with only drive, but only masochist could play later Sierra games. Insert disk 4. And go for lunch. Then insert disk 1. Prepare coffee. Insert disk 4. Have a shower. And after that Roger Wilco finally gets from left side of the screen to the right In early ninetees I didn´t like Sierra at all, I thought they discriminated Amiga users.
